Dotted Visuals: Polka Dots in Contemporary Graphic Design
(50 items available)
Dotted Visuals selects the most innovative graphic work of recent years featuring the humble polka dot in the fields of art, design and fashion from around the globe. Spare yet elegant, the polka dot continues to appeal to designers as a motif with broad applications for a variety of disciplines from fashion, to graphics, typography and space design. Isolated or in a crowd, black and white or in colour, indistinct or in sharp focus, the multiplicity of effects are endless. An elemental unit of design in the universe, the dot has an aesthetic appeal that is perhaps part instinctual and part referential as virtually everything found from the micro to the macro level is based on this simple form.
